Saying no one is above the law, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives will be launching an official impeachment inquiry into Trump pressuring the Ukrainian government into investigating the son of Joe Biden, a political rival in the 2020 election, by withholding around $390 million in military aid.
"Today I'm announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. I’m directing our six committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry."
Trump's response was about what everyone expected... A tweet spiral.
He began with tweet how great he was and how everyone is against him.
Then, as proof of his innocence apparently, he just named a few of his favorite targets.
He followed that up with a claim that the transcript he had promised earlier in the day when the probability of impeachment inquiry was rumbling around to release Wednesday would show he didn't do anything wrong.
*with how cautious Pelosi has been about impeachment, for her to pull the trigger without the transcript says a lot
Then he just tweet screams, "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!"
He took a break for a few minutes, possibly yelling for someone to upload that video they had made in case of an official impeachment inquiry, because the next tweet was a prepared video about how the Democrats are only focused on impeachment and he is working for the people.
*that he had a video prepared for this says a lot
Then it looks like he watched some news about it and must have seen that one of the issues being brought up is that it is not great for foreign policy for a president to release the transcript of a call with a foreign leader, and posted a grammatically challenged tweet about it.
"Secretary of State Pompeo recieved permission from Ukraine Government to release the transcript of the telephone call I had with their President. They don’t know either what the big deal is. A total Witch Hunt Scam by the Democrats!"
The transcript probably won't show any blatant quid pro quo or pressure, and it may not even bring up the withheld aid, but while reading the transcript it is important to remember the withheld aid.
